Visitor Policy

Interview with Freya, Jen and Cathy

JM: How often could you receive visitors?
Freya: twice a week for 1 hour with a week's notice--so I didn't qualify, and this part was not on the website.
Jen: You could have 2 (1 hour) visits a week.
Cathy: I didn't have visitors because I had regular contact with my friends/family through phone calls, etc. throughout my days at work. Work release inmates were allowed contact visits with pre-approved visitors on Saturdays and Sundays only. All other visits were held on phones through a plexiglass window. Inmates were allowed two 1-hour visits per week.

JM: Was the check-in process lengthy for those who came to see you?
Freya: NA
Jen: No-they had to leave there ID with the visitors desk and walk through a metal detector.
Cathy: Visitors had to be pre-approved (inmate had to list all visitors that they wanted to see). After that, they had to leave their ID at the visitors' desk and walk through a metal detector.

JM: What was the visiting environment like?
Freya: NA
Jen: You talked on phones through a plexiglass window. The visitor side had comfy chairs to sit on, and toys and books to keep children busy. SCDOC also has a family center to help children cope with a parent being in jail.
Cathy: I didn't have visitors, but I was told that the visitors' side had comfortable chairs for the visitors to sit on and toys/books to keep children busy.
